WELCOME TO THE ROWAN COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY AND GENEALOGY GROUP WEBSITE
Headed by Lloyd Dean, our society was formed in 1977 with about 60 charter members. It has grown to a membership of over 80 members. There have been activities over the years that have brought a renewed interest within the community of Rowan County's history. The genealogy group now has a collection of family histories and research materials, which continues to grow in size.
In the year 2006 our county will hold a yearlong countywide celebration of its 150th birthday. These activities will be updated on the Sesquicentennial page of this website as plans are finalized.
Please give us your comments and suggestions, which will be considered by our website keepers, Missy Jent and Kay Schafer. Thanks for checking us out and come visit our great county anytime. We'd love to have you!
